To troubleshoot ALOHA, you use the DiagTools tab to run diagnostic tools from the user interface.

DiagTool web form

The DiagTool tab displays the following form composed of these elements:

//cdnvz.haproxy.com/documentation/aloha/9-0/_assets/images/diagtoolstab.png

The web form is composed by the following elements:

  1. Diagnostic tool to run

  2. Depending on the tool, number of tries or occurrence to capture

  3. Maximum time to run the diagnostic tool

  4. Tool option #1

  5. Tool option #2

  6. Tool option #3

  7. Output from the tool

Certain tools can take on options. These options are described in the command line to run. If an option name is followed by an asterisk *, it is not mandatory.

Use the ping tool of the form above with two options: one optional, one mandatory.

  • option #1: source IP to use.

    Optional, since the ALOHA automatically uses the best IP for the destination

  • option #2: destination IP to reach

  • option #3: not used
